No gardening this afternoon for me either Verd -  Black Dragon opening up .....

Off out to a friend so catch up later.

Hope she has cake....

Lovely sunny day here in the south so thought i would wash all the sofa cushion covers,wish i hadnt started.As a treat i am now going out to plant my new plants, one is a pink campanula called pink octopus has a very strange smell bur amongst the other plants im sure i wont smell it. It makes a change to have the back door open.



Maud, why do we set ourselves stupid tasks to do when the sun shines.  Well, some of us do.

Have decided to leave one wall as it is puurfeck and far enough away from first wall so you don't notice the slight difference in colour.  Who looks at walls anyway. Got done what I wanted and, at the risk of sounding as if I'm complaining, was so hot.  Have tidied the pond lilly without taking a dip, tidied the shed and sorted my gardening box out. Now know what I've got. Actually didn't have 2 of anything, which makes a change.

Lunch in the garden and a boost of vitamen D. 




Maud, I just bought campanula Pink Octopus today, never heard of it before. It's still in bud so I haven't smelt it yet. Label said it's a flower arranger's delight but if it smells funny I wonder.

Went to Pashley Manor today, lovely garden very English. Will put photos on gardens we have visited thread.


I could have done with hanging the dog on the line. Bathed him, let him out, promptly rolled on grass, at least it's not covered in 'mess'. He has now spent ages washing his feet.

Turned on water tap this afternoon to find drinking water was brown, contacted water people and they said run it for 20mins. What about my water bill I cried (water meter) and he said I would be compensated so, fair enough, spent the time filling and re-filling watering cans and containers and some veg are now watered


Oh Bev I really do hope it all goes OK tomorrow. Will be thinking about you
